While I agree that inclusion doesn't guarantee higher awareness, the 
inverse seems more likely to me, for maintainerless apps at least: with 
no maintainer to request and coordinate releases, apps not in KDE 
Applications don't get released, so their awareness gradually drops to 
zero over time. Inclusion in the KDE Applications bundle may not be a 
panacea, but how else are maintainerless/community-maintained apps 
supposed to get released?
